Phoenix police and Silent Witness are asking for the public's help in identifying a man suspected of robbing multiple businesses. 

Authorities say between July 1 and July 4 the suspect entered several businesses with his face covered and demanded money while keeping his right hand behind his back. 

The robberies took place at the Subway near 32nd Street and Greenway Road, the Starbucks near 40th Street and Greenway Road, and the Dairy Queen near Cave Creek Road and Sweetwater Avenue.

After the suspect obtained money, he would reportedly leave the area in a gray or silver four door car. 

In one of the robberies, the suspect fled from a business and ran head and shoulders into a truck and then proceeded to run into the door he fled out of which was still open. 

Police say the suspect is described as a 23-year-old man, 5 feet 9 inches tall, and weighing 160 pounds. He has black hair, brown eyes, and tattoos on the back of both of his arms.

If you have any information on the identity of this man or these robberies, you are asked to call 480-WITNESS, you can remain anonymous.
